Rev. Fr. Mesrob and Yn. Ojeen Lakissian attended the Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) “Mher Megerdchian” theatrical group’s 15th anniversary by special invitation. The event took place at St. Thomas Armenian Apostolic Church in NJ on Sunday, November 24, 2013.
Rev. Lakissian offered the opening prayer and the artistic program included performance by St. Illuminator’s “Huyser” ensemble.
For the past 15 years the “Mher Megerdchian” company presented 18 theatrical works. Both the “Mher Megerdchian” as well as New York Hamazkayin theatrical groups have survived for many years, presenting the Armenian theater in Armenian.
TCA chairman Hagop Vartevarian noted that for the first time in the group’s history clergy from the Armenian Prelacy offered the opening prayer and blessed the tables.
